Default Video card upgrade

So I'm thinking of buying 2 570gtx's before Skyrim arrives on 11.11.11... is there anything coming on the horizon that I should think about waiting for... will be playing at 1920x1200, any idea of the requirements for Skyrim, should I be able to play it maxed out with 40+fps?

Thanks,

Vanz

OS= Win7
CPU = i7-2600k
RAM = 8gb

Not from Nvidia.

ATI might, but at 19x12 I bet 2 570s would be more than enough.

Enjoy Vanz - I'm a little jealous My lone 480 will have to do for a while.

No release planned from either side before Xmas.
AMD will probably be a bit before and NV a bit after (early new year?).

So, if you want Skyrim on release day, vid cards will be about the same as now.
Prices tend to fall with time though...
